This has been explained previously.
If you click on the "view/reply online" link below a message and scroll down, you will find a "View  all X messages in topic" link.
I find this a great improvement over the old system where several digests had to be opened to follow a complete thread.

Hi,

I agree with Naomi Barnett.

In addition, I wrote some time ago regarding writing family surnames in CAPITALS, as was once the case.

JewishGen, what's going on?

The Zamosc Memorial Book is now On Line

Jack Berger
 

Folks,

 

I am most pleased to announce that my English translation of ‘Pinkas Zamosc,’ called ‘The Zamosc Memorial Book’ is now available on line for general view.

 

It can be found in my ‘vinkl,’ by going to www.zelva.org

 

In the upper LEFT hand corner of the home page, you will see a box labelled “Yizkor Books.” Click on it.

 

This will bring you to the inventory listing of my translations, and you will readily see where the icons are for those files that are online.

 

I completed and published the hard copy of The Zamosc Memorial Book over fifteen years ago. It is the largest of the corpus of books that I have so processed, running over 800 pages.

 

The Jewish history of Zamosc is replete with the splendor of the development of Eastern European Jewish culture. That splendor is not confined to matters of religious scholarship by any means.  If nobody else, most readers will recognize the name of I. L. Peretz, who was born in Zamosc, and is among the brightest of stars in the constellation of Jewish literary accomplishment.

 

You will also learn of the enlightenment of the Count Jan Zamoyski, who after being the Chancellor of the University of Padua, opened his city to Jews, particularly Sephardic Jews fleeing the pitiless Spanish Inquisition, accepting them as legitimate citizens.

 

I could go  on, but you should read this material yourselves. There  is much to be learned.

 

Regards

Jack

I feel it important to list (perhaps in parenthesis) stillborns and even miscarriages.

This information can be very helpful for a person's medical history.

Re: Do you keep passports?

Hi Linda,

Just recently, I, had the good fortune to find a passport for two family members.  YES, keep, or scan (the whole thing) and keep them.  I feel they can really help "flesh out" the life of that ancestor, and anything more than names & dates is a bonus, in my book.  In my case, the passport has also been helpful in cracking open a brick wall in my research.  I can only hope to find more passports.

My father's first cousin gave me a copy of their grandfather's passport, which included the names of three of his children traveling with him.  This was very helpful in searching passenger manifests.  I wish I had the original, even if only for the sake of history.


Re: thoughts - opinions

Beth Long
 

I find trying to keep track of women's miscarriages intrusive. There would be no record of a miscarriage, other than a medical one, which is private. Or did you mean to say stillbirth (which is a different thing and does have a record).

Dear Group,

I've posted two related texts clips >from the 1876 Marriage Record of

The first clip is the description of the groom, and the second is the
comment section. I would appreciate help in transcribing them.

Norm, please get in touch with Yulia about the payment. The book can be purchased by subscription only, so she'll need to have the payment for it. 

Thanks.

Re: UPDATE Surprising DNA results from Ancestry

Thank you for sharing.  Best wishes on connecting to your new family when you do so.


Re: DNA ethnicity

Ellen
 

Not to alarm you, but if your grandparents were arrested, they could have been exiled to Siberia, sentenced to a labor camp, or even executed.  

An uncle told me years ago that my grandfather's brother was arrested around that time, and it was assumed he was deported to Siberia.  But I later found my great-uncle's name on a website listing "victims of Stalin," indicating that he was executed (shot) in 1937.  I've since learned the complete story from his granddaughter. 

There are many books about Stalin's purges during this time.  The "Great Purge" occurred in the late 1930s, but there were thousands of other executions carried out under Stalin until his death in 1953.

You can always donate important historical papers to a Jewish repository.  Maybe, start with the Center for Jewish History.

What happened to threads?

Dahn Cukier
 

I am getting replies but have no idea where or how
to find the original post or the thread.

Is there a setting for getting the complete thread?

One way to cut down on having too many posts
would have everyone reply to the original poster and
that person would forward or combine answers, and
reply to the list. This would
mean in short, that every poster becomes a moderator of
their threads.

Re: Do you keep passports?

Robert Fraser
 

Absolutely!

Passports are not only vital official and formal evidence, if it should be needed, but essential in family research. I still have my parent's (german) passports from when they left Vienna for Britain in 1939, with the various stamps and visas. They provided much-needed assistance when I was re-constructing their migration history.
